Hi all,

I've had a couple of Mercs (190D 2.5, 300D, E270cdi) before I got myself a completely different car.
That's more like a point-car....no fun, but practical.
For fun I bought a smart Roadster and made some mods to it.
Not so long ago a friend asked me what car to buy....it had to be a convertible, but not a soft top and within a certain price range.
I ended up looking for SLK's and found one: a 2002 200K with 225K km's on it...with good looking leather interior, xenon and some more options.
A lot of km's but I took the gamble and promised her to keep it on the road.
Since then I have been luking in this forum and others.
Found out about the oily cable on the camshaft magnet and replaced/added the cable and magnet.
There was already some oil in the plug, but I hope I mofified the cable in time!
Didn't see oil at the ECU...
Cleaned the MAF sensor, changed oils and filters, spark plugs.....
Let's hope she can enjoy the car for a long time!

Hi and welcome to SLKWorld.com from the UK Midlands - Thanks for joining us and posting an intro! :)

Please think about moving your Smart Roadster into the "Other Toys" field in your profile, along with your bikes - We tend to use "Vehicle" for SLKs only. :D

Don’t forget to lube those seals:
Mods you should think about doing to your SLK:
Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
  • Post your VIN (or VIN of a car you're looking at) in the Vehicle Datacard Request section to get a free datacard (options on the car).
    FREE!! How to get a free data card!
  • If you haven’t, please use the 'search' feature at the top right of the page for your questions as they have probably been asked before. Remember, ‘Search’ is your friend.
  • If you wish to become PM (Private Message) capable, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome enough new members to obtain your needed posts to PM.
  • Want to post a picture? Start a new thread or make a post, click ‘edit’, click on the ‘paper clip’ or ‘advanced’ and/or ‘manage attachments’ then ‘choose file’ then ‘upload’ and ‘submit’! If iPhone/iPad pics, you can only attach 1 pic per post this way as iOS names its pics all the same, image.jpg.
  • Want to 'like' or 'thank' someone’s comments? Use the ‘like’ button to the right or the ‘Thanks’ button, bottom right of any individual’s post that you like. This saves you having to comment.
  • New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link in the info bar towards the top of the screen is a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last. Remember to click 'mark forums read' under ‘quick links’ when you leave.
  • Also vote or enter our Ride of the Month competition: ROTM Submissions & Voting - Mercedes Benz SLK Forum
  • Finally, the Picture of the Day section is guaranteed to have something to make you smile each weekday morning!
Thank you
Dave
